Originally released in 1982 this recording features the Tanzanian-Zairean band with a warm, swaying soukous sound. Happy, dancey, w/vocals, percussion, guitars, and some good horns. It’s an easy, joyful collection of songs. Not as uptempo as similar releases, it nevertheless has a good energy & a catchy sound.|
